The Diversity of Life

This theme deals with the following:

  • Organismal relationships at all levels
  • Evolution of morphological and other traits
  • Phylogenetic theory and methodology
  • Taxonomy (identification and description of new species, taxonomic revisions, writing of faunas and floras)

The Swedish Museum of Natural History is deeply involved in research on the world´s biodiversity, relationships between different organisms (phylogeny), and evolution. Our extensive scientific collections are crucial for this research, as are our analytial tools, such as DNA laboratory and electron microscopes.
